the massachusetts health care law. the same law that become the framework for the affordable care act. i don't remember conservatives complaining about the law then. back then everyone was all smiles, even this guy. a top official at the conservative think tank, the heritage foundation. look how happy he is. but now suddenly the heritage foundation is the group leading the charge against the president's health care law. it's even supported senator ted cruz's anti-obama care tour this summer. and today senator cruz continued that crusade at the headquarters for the heritage foundation. >> it is a particular privilege being here at heritage, heritage plays such an important role in helping articulate and defend conservative principles across this country. and in no fight has that been more apparent than in the fight over obama care. >> but republicans were on the other side of that fight just a few years ago. they've completely flip-flopped. now the whole right wing is against it. why? because president obama is for it. but he's come too far to back down now. >> and if if was hard doing it jus

the entire law. today republican leaders made that clear. >> you know, the problem with obama care isn't just the website. it's the whole law. >> and the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> hear that? this isn't about the website glitches. it's about scrapping the whole thing. never mind that 17 million children with pre-existing conditions are now covered. never mind that insurance premiums are 16% lower than expected. the gop wants all this to wither on the vine. and they're offering no alternatives of their own. and today democratic congressman bill pasquel called them out on it. >> including the one i'm the coo sponsor of. >> are you serious what you just said? are you really serious? after what we have gone through and what we have gone through in the last three and a half years. you can sit there and say that you had a legitimate alternative after these years? we've gone through 44 votes, 48 votes now, of you trying to dismantle the legislation. you call that cooperation? i don't. >> wow. that's an amazing moment. this law is important. it's

moment dozens of senate republicans are expected to vote against a gay rights law that would ban discrimination against gay and lesbian employees in the workplace. that's 39 republicans who didn't get the memo. why? because they haven't learned anything. what about women's rights? republican senator lindsey graham is now launching a new fight against a woman's right to choose. calling for a 20-week abortion ban. >> i've been a pro-life member of congress since day one. i'm proud to lead this charge. >> todd akin was once proud to lead this charge. how'd that work out? again, they haven't learned anything. and this extreme ideology is particularly bad. look at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relationships are immoral, wants to ban abortions with no exception, and once said it's possible the president was born in kenya. and he's plunging in the polls. 12 points behind. so why is that? president obama was in virginia over the weekend with the answer. >> you've seen on extreme faction of the republican pa

but was denied. an example of the unfair applications of that unjust law. well, today a judge set a new date for her trial. march 31st. and he set a bond hearing for next friday. in just a few days she could be out of jail and back with her friends and family. marissa's case has sparked a national outcry. igniting a grassroots movement to set her free. and change the unjust stand your ground law. we'll be watching. these hearings and proceedings. and hope justice will finally be served. when we look at marissa alexander, a woman who was, in fact, threatened by her husband and who had had several peace warrants against him, here was a woman obviously who hurt no one, shot nobody, shot at no one. doing 20 years in jail. it shows how ludicrous it is to have stand your ground laws that protect people who shoot and then others that fire warning shots that have a history of being abused. and they get 20 years in jail. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton.

crocodile tears. >> and there's this relentless attack of misinformation about the law by the right wing media. watch this. >> there's too much health insurance. it covers too much. too many people have it. >> the government deciding who will live, who will die. you're too old, you're too young. >> is that what this plan is about by saving money by telling who to kill people? >> putting you at risk of losing insurance is a bit of hot air, in my opinion. >> it's not insurance. it's welfare. buy your own birth control pill. buy your own breast pump. that's not a health issue. >> it's amazing. and they try to pretend that they want to make the health care -- affordable care act work. do they think we forgot they tried to repeal it 46 times? >> every time we turned around in the congress in the last year, they were bringing another forward to repeal obama care. they simply do not care about people. this is really a war on the poor. and this is one of the things that is the most difficult for the people at the lower end of the economic schedule to deal with. that is an illness or an injury. y
